If you haven't called Jayco to inquire about the denied claim I'd do that today.
The first call to them got a note given to the tech who denied my claim, with the promise that he'd call me. After two days I called again and was told it had been "modified, approved". They allso said that "the portal had been down" for a few days and dealers couldn't log in. Maybe this was the reason things showed as denied.
If denied, I wanted to ask them what they would recommend I do about the fading. I'm pretty certain they don't want people thinking about buying Jayco and hearing that the paint fades quickly. Also not good advertizing for them seeing these going down the road.
Good luck!

This stinks, just found the thread. Took my 2013 DSBH out of storage this Spring and found the top front edge severely faded, tried waxing it but didn't help. We bought used in 2014 so probably no help from Jayco on this. Not so hot up here in Michigan so it may have taken another 6-12 months to start showing.

Final update to my fading issue...Jayco paid to have the endcap re-painted, but refused to cover the fading on the sides & back, as they "do not warranty the 'painted' surfaces." I later found out that the sides & back are not painted, but are resin composite panels! Also found out that Zxylon does not warranty any application of their product on such surfaces! Jayco was no help, so the dealer stepped up and bought us out of our Jayco & made us a super deal on another brand. Good luck to all.

The no answer was from Jayco, I bought the 2014 in 2015 used, it had been out 3 or 4 times and still smelled new. Jayco's out was second owner so no warranty even though the manufacture date was just over a year old. Looked like crap so I had it done locally at my expense, I keep my equipment well maintained. My TV is 16 years old and I get asked frequently if it's new, no just well kept.

Actually my front cap cracked at the running light during the first summer we had it. Took to the dealer and Jayco replaced the whole cap rather than trying to repair.

Just emailed jayco about mine I may also call dealer. This camper has been in quite a few times for warranty items the biggest being collapsed ductwork for furnace. They had to completely replace ducting. Frustrating to say the least. Not sure if I would want my dealer to paint cap or have a body guy do it that i trust. I would think an automotive type paint would be better than what Jayco is using.

My trailer "2014 Jayfeather X19H" was just starting to fade slighting on the front. I only just noticed it when hooking up my battery. Further than the hitch and you would never tell it was an issue. Also the front is a light color. Warranty up in 2 months so took to dealer. Jayco decided not to pay for repainting by dealer BUT instead sent the dealer a new front cap to put on. Looks good .. hopefully this one lasts longer.

So we got the fifth wheel back today and i am really happy! We decided to not put decals on and the body shop painted two front stripes for us. We went with the same color as the body to help cool the bedroom. As i said i am really happy with the way it turned out.

Mine is in getting painted now. We went the same way with decals, basically none except the two "ends" of the side swoosh. Will post before and after pic when it's home.
